Top 10 From San Diego - Part I

We got back from San Diego Saturday night. It was a wonderful trip filled with sunshine, not too warm whether, pools and relaxation. Here's my top 10 list for things to see while in San Diego...

10. Balboa Park - We didn't get to see a whole lot of the park because most of it was closed when we got their after the zoo...but it is very pretty and filled with museums of all kinds. If you are there, you can see this gorgeous and HUGE fig tree. It looked like one that many people would like to climb, but the fence around it makes that feat kinda difficult.

9. Padres Game - This was a fun night. When we were there the Padres played the Braves (my husband's favorite team) the game was exciting. I think there were 16 strikeouts thrown by the Padres starting pitcher. And the Braves won. I figure that'll make a good trivia question someday.

8. Old Town - Old Town is a pretty neat place in San Diego depicting how the first settlement might have looked. There are several authentic Mexican restaurants that serve GREAT food there. They even make their tortillas by hand there too.

In addition to the great food there is a market area where vendors sell some really cool things from finger puppets to religious ornaments to wrestling masks. It's a definite pick for us. Be sure that you look at the whole park, though, when we first went we missed a good half of it that was really cool.

Because I can only post so many pictures I will do my top ten in phases...look for Part II coming soon.

Wow..It's Been a While

It's seemed like forever since I last posted. Since then we've had another doctor's appointment and everything seems to be going quite well. He's growing, kicking an coming right along.

Yesterday was picture day at soccer...maybe it's just me, but I really like this picture.

Today is Mother's Day...and it's been a really neat one in our home. Jake and Jim made me the cutest train...which they painted's a letter train saying Jake heart Mom. It's so cute!! I just love it.

Thank you to the greatest guys in my life and in the world. I love you!!
